The bowl is 2 3/8” OD and it is finished with clear semi gloss lacquer.

The process I used is on this blog:

Niece piece Jim. I like the stand. I’ll have to use that one. Looks like three pieces of wood all joined together as one.

This one takes the cake. I tried to figure it out on my own, didn’t work. Watched the picture set-up in order and everything else, still didn’t work. Even if I figure it out, probably won’t try it. This design is all yours. EXCELLENT JOB !!! Mel

That turned out really good Jim, It looks much better than mine.

Well done buddy.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
